T.H.E. Show Newport Beach 2015 Report
The Home Entertainment Show 2015
SMc Audio And Wadax

  SMc, a company by the longstanding designer Steve McCormack, had a great variety of high-end audio gear at T.H.E. Show Newport 2015. New from SMc Audio is their $50,000 reference line stage, which is exclusively distributed by Hi Fi One. This cost no-object design includes a remote 100-step volume control that feeds a discrete wide-bandwidth JFET circuit, which employs no feedback.


Here's what Hi Fi One brought to T.H.E. Show Newport 2015:

My brief moments in the room included them playing some excellent blues with the audiences heads bobbing and grooving. Dare we say, they were enjoying the music. 'Nuff said.



SMc Audio's VRE-1C was also being used as were a variety of digital front-end gear from Wadax.
